Everything You Need to Know
About Your Skilled Worker Visa

What is the Skilled Worker route visa?

At the end of 2020, the Home Office made changes to a new points-based immigration system. The Skilled Worker route opened for applications and replaced the Tier 2 (General work visa) route. While there are a number of similarities between Tier 2 (General) and the Skilled Worker route, changes have been introduced to allow employers to sponsor a wider workforce from outside the UK.These adjustments appear to make the system much more flexible and may encourage migrants to see the United Kingdom as a more appealing destination. The new points-based system includes a route for skilled workers who have a job offer from an approved employer sponsor.


Is Tier 2 the same as the Skilled Worker visa UK?

The Skilled Worker visa is the successor of the Tier 2 visa. Whilst most of the fundamental requirements and conditions are the same, these are not identical routes. However, someone who has leave to remain as a Tier 2 migrant would make an application under the Skilled Worker route to extend their permission/apply for ILR, as the Tier 2 route is now closed to entry clearance, leave to remain, and settlement applications.

Who is eligible for the Skilled Worker visa?

This is a points-based application. The applicant must score 70 points in total. The points will be made up of mandatory and tradeable points, as follows:-MANDATORY 20 Points sponsorship by a licensed sponsor

MANDATORY 20 Points job at the correct skill level for sponsorship

MANDATORY 10 Points English language level at B1 (CEFR)

Tradeable points

20 points must be claimed for the salary. All jobs are classified using a Standard Occupational Code (SOC). The SOC determines the going rate or minimum salary required for the position.

The applicant can score the required 20 points if they meet the criteria listed in Option A below.

Option A 20 points

(From 4th April 2024, the minimum salary for Skilled Worker visa applicants will rise from £26,200 to £38,700)

At least £10.75 per hour; and

At least the going rate for the SOC

If the applicant’s salary is less than the above, they may be able to score the required 20 points by trading points for other attributes or characteristics under Options B F below.

Option B 20 points

A PhD in a subject relevant to the sponsored job and a salary of:

At least £23,580 per year;

At least £10.75 per hour; and

At least 90% of the going rate for SOC

Option C 20 points

A PhD in a STEM subject relevant to the sponsored job and a salary of

At least £20,960 per year;

At least £10.75 per hour; and

At least 80% of the going rate for the SOC

Option D 20 points

A job which falls on the UK shortage occupation list and a salary of

At least £20,960 per year;

At least £10.75 per hour; and

At least 80% of the going rate for the SOC

Option E 20 points

Applicant falls under the definition of a new entrant to the labour market, and they have a salary of

At least £20,960 per year;

At least £10.75 per hour; and

At least 70% of the going rate for the SOC

Option F

A job which falls under the Home Office confirmed list of health or education jobs and a salary of:

At least £20,960 per year; and

At least the going rate for the SOC


How long can you stay on the Skilled Worker visa?

The maximum time one can apply for is 5 years at a time. It is possible to apply for any period of up to 5 years in a single application. The visa will be issued in line with the dates given by the sponsor on the Certificate of Sponsorship.For example, someone employed on a 1-year (fixed term) contract may be assigned a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) with start and end dates that align with their employment contract. Although they were initially sponsored for only a year, the employer can sponsor an extension application to allow the employee to keep working for them in the same or different role. With a new CoS, the person can make an application from inside the UK to extend their Skilled Worker visa.


Can my family join me in the UK?

A Skilled Worker can bring visa dependents which include the spouse, unmarried partner and children aged under 18.

What is the lowest minimum skilled threshold for this visa?

From December 2020, most jobs offered to an overseas worker must be at RQF3 or above (this is equivalent to A level),  Under the Tier 2 (General) route, the skill level required was RQF6 (graduate level), with a few of exceptions where the skilled level was lower such as shortage occupation list chefs). Now, migrants applying for a Skilled Worker visa will not necessarily need to hold formal qualifications. However, the skill level of the job they will be doing will determine whether the skill threshold is met.

What is the lowest salary requirement for a Skilled Worker visa UK?

Unlike Tier 2 (General) where the minimum salary to sponsor from overseas was £30,000, the Skilled Worker visa has a current salary requirement of at least £26,200: (it will increase from £26,200 to £38,700 from 4th April 2024). Employers looking to recruit under the Skilled Worker route will need to pay the skilled worker a salary that equals or exceeds this salary threshold as well as the going rate for the occupation (as set out in the Standard Occupational Classification system), whichever is higher. However, it is possible for those using the Skilled Worker route to in fact be paid less than the new general salary, where they will be given additional tradeable points for other attributes. This is something new and different when compared to the old Tier 2 General route. Examples of those skilled workers with a lower salary are as follows:

  • An applicant with a job offer under the shortage occupation list may be paid a salary which equals or exceeds both the general salary of £20,960 per annum and 80% of the going rate under the relevant SOC code
  • An applicant who is considered a new entrant may be paid an annual salary which equals or exceeds both £20,960 and 70% of the going rate under the relevant SOC code
  • A PhD applicant may be paid an annual salary which equals or exceeds both £23,580 and 90% of the going rate for the relevant SOC code.

What if I'm a new entrant to the job market?

The so-called new entrant criteria can be met in a number of ways. They must be under the age of 26 at the time of application, the applicant is a recent graduate or about to graduate. Those sponsored in postdoctoral research positions, along with those working towards professional qualifications, registration, or chartered status are included in the new entrant route.

Is there a Skilled Worker visa limit?

The cap on the number of Skilled Worker migrants entering the UK has been cancelled under the new points-based system, meaning there is no set number of how many migrants should be allowed under the Skilled Worker route.

What are the benefits of the Skilled Worker visa route?

  • A better opportunity for employers to recruit talent from around the world.
  • The Resident Labour Market test (RLMT), where settled workers could apply for positions before they were offered to migrants, has been abolished with the new scheme.
  • More generous provisions allow the switching of visa routes from inside the UK.
  • Lower minimum salary requirements for new entrants (who are starting their careers). They will need to meet either 70% of the going rate for their occupation code or £20,960, whichever is higher.
  • There will be no limits on the number of skilled workers who can come to the UK.
  • Skilled workers can now apply for unlimited visa extensions compared to the old Tier 2 (General) visa route, where skilled workers could apply for extensions of up to six years.
  • Applicants can live, work, and establish themselves in the UK and apply for Indefinite Leave To Remain after residing in the UK for five years.

What is needed to successfully apply for a Skilled Worker visa?

An applicant will need the following documents to file an application under the Skilled Worker route:

  • A valid passport
  • A Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS), which is issued by the employer
  • The job offer must require a skill level at or above RQF3 (A level equivalent)
  • Evidence of meeting the required level of English language skills
  • Evidence that the candidate meets the maintenance requirement, either by showing evidence of their savings or an undertaking from their employer
  • TB test, if your country is listed in Appendix T

What are the qualifying points for a Skilled Worker visa UK?

  • Mandatory 50 points attributed to all skilled migrants, which are as follows:
    • English speaking at the required level 10 points

Is the Skilled Worker visa the same as a Health and Care visa?

The Skilled Worker visa and Health and Care Worker visa are one and the same – the Health and Care worker visa is a subcategory of the Skilled worker route. Both have similar eligibility and both allow the applicant to obtain settlement after 5 years.

 

The primary difference between the Skilled Worker visa and the Skilled Worker – Health and Care visa is that the Health and Care visa allows you to enter or remain in the UK to do an eligible job with an approved employer with a reduced application fee and no Immigration Health Surcharge. If your job enables you to be eligible for this visa route, the fees are:

 

  • £247 for a visa which lasts up to 3 years
  • £479 for a visa which lasts more than 3 years
  • You will be exempt from paying the IHS fee

You can check to see if your job is eligible with a 4-digit occupation code which you can ask your employer to provide if you already have a job offer.

You will need to have held at least £1,270 in your bank account for at least 28 days in a row – day 28 must be within 31 days of applying for the visa.

Does the Skilled Worker visa grant access to public funds?

Do EU nationals need a visa to work in the UK?

Post Brexit, EU nationals no longer have the right to free movement in the UK, unless they entered the UK prior to January 2021 and have obtained pre-settled status or settled status. This means that they are now subject to the Skilled Worker visa requirements should they wish to work in the UK.

Immigration Solicitor Explains UK Expansion Worker Visa | Eligibility, & Requirements UNDER 5 MINS

A Y & J Solicitors May 27, 2023 1:30 pm

Ensure compliance with Right to Work checks as an employer in the UK with our comprehensive video guide. With potential penalties and legal troubles at stake, it's crucial to understand the correct procedures and stay up to date with the latest regulations.
With over 14 years of experience in immigration compliance, our trusted law firm has helped numerous UK business owners navigate the complexities of Right to Work checks. In this video, we share our expertise and provide essential guidance to save you from hefty fines and potential damage to your business.
Non-compliance with Right to Work checks can have severe consequences, including civil penalties of up to £20,000 per breach, criminal prosecution, enforced debt action, and even suspension or revocation of your Sponsor Licence. Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge and tools to avoid these pitfalls.
We cover the three main types of Right to Work checks: Manual, Digital, and Online. Each method has its own benefits and requirements, and we delve into them one by one to provide a comprehensive understanding.
For Manual checks, we explain the step-by-step process of obtaining, checking, and copying original documents while ensuring compliance with data protection laws. We emphasize the importance of authenticity and record-keeping for the duration of employment and two years after termination.
Digital checks offer convenience and speed, utilizing Identity Document Validation Technology (IDVT) for remote verification. We highlight the necessity of retaining copies of IDVT check outputs in a secure, uneditable format to meet compliance requirements.
Online checks through the Home Office's online system are suitable for individuals with biometric residence permits, biometric residence cards, or settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme. We guide you through the process of obtaining and retaining the necessary documentation.
In cases where the above methods are not applicable, we introduce the Employer Checking Service (ECS). This free online service provided by the Home Office allows employers to fulfill their duty of conducting Right to Work checks in exceptional circumstances.
We address the recent changes regarding EU, EEA, and Swiss employees, emphasizing the need for valid pre-settled status, settled status, or a valid visa. For existing EU employees who underwent compliance checks before June 30th, 2021, retrospective checks are not necessary.
To support you further, we offer training programs for your Human Resources department and management team, equipping them with the knowledge and tools required to meet statutory duties and maintain compliance with Right to Work checks. Additionally, if you have or are applying for a Sponsor Licence, we can assist you in establishing compliance with sponsorship duties.

UK Senior Care Assistant Granted Skilled Worker Visa | Client Testimonial

A Y & J Solicitors September 4, 2023 8:54 am

In this video, we will discuss the UK's point-based system for immigration, including what it is, how it works, and how to apply for a UK visa using this system.
The UK's point-based system was introduced in 2021 and has since become the main way for skilled workers to come to the UK to work, study or invest. The system is based on assigning points to different factors, such as education level, work experience, language proficiency, and job offer.
To apply for a visa under the UK's point-based system, you must first check whether your occupation is eligible under the system. The government publishes a list of eligible occupations, which is updated regularly. Once you have confirmed your occupation is eligible, you can then start the process of applying for a visa.
The first step in the process is to create an account on the UK government's website and complete an initial application form. This will ask for basic information about you, including your personal details, your occupation, and your qualifications.
Once you have completed the initial application form, you will be assigned a score based on the points system. If you meet the minimum points requirement, you will then be invited to apply for a visa.
The next step in the process is to submit your full visa application, including supporting documents such as your passport, evidence of your qualifications, and proof of your job offer. You will also need to pay a fee for your visa application.
After you have submitted your visa application, you may be required to attend an interview at a visa application center. This is to ensure that the information you have provided is accurate and that you meet the requirements of the visa.
If your visa application is successful, you will be granted a visa to come to the UK. The length of your visa will depend on the type of visa you applied for, but typically visas are granted for a period of two to five years.
Overall, the UK's point-based system for immigration provides a clear and structured process for skilled workers to come to the UK to work, study or invest. While the process can be complex, with careful planning and attention to detail, it is possible to successfully apply for a visa under this system.
We hope you found this video informative and useful. If you have any further questions or would like more information, please contact us.

UK Visa: Everything you need to know

A Y & J Solicitors February 9, 2023 7:30 am

The video covers three frequently asked questions about the UK Skilled Worker Visa. 
Question 1
Do Skilled Worker Visa dependents need to show proof of English language? 
Question 2
A client submitted their Skilled Worker Visa application, keeping her marital status as single because she did not have the marriage certificate then. Now she has the marriage certificate she wants to bring over to us. But how can she correct this discrepancy? 
Question 3
I have lost and misplaced my previous UK visa refusals. I need this information to complete my next application. Where do I find them?
